San Marino in the Eurovision Song Contest
◄2021 2022

San Marino participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin, Italy, with "Stripper" performed by Achille Lauro. The Sammarinese broadcaster, San Marino RTV (SMRTV), organised the new national final Una voce per San Marino ("A voice for San Marino") to decide their representative.

San Marino was drawn to compete in the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest which took place on 12 May 2022. Performing during the show in position 7, "Stripper" was not announced among the top 10 entries of the second semi-final and therefore did not qualify to compete in the final. It was later revealed that San Marino placed 14th out of the 18 participating countries in the semi-final with 50 points.

Background

Prior to the 2022 contest, San Marino participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 11 times since their first entry in 2008.[1] The nation's debut entry, "Complice" performed by Miodio, failed to qualify for the final and placed last in the semi-final it competed in.[1] San Marino subsequently did not participate in both the 2009 and 2010 contests, citing financial difficulties.[2][3] They returned in 2011 with Italian singer Senit performing "Stand By", which also failed to take the nation to the final.[1] From 2012 to 2014, San Marino sent Valentina Monetta to the contest on three consecutive occasions, which made her the first singer to participate in three consecutive contests since Udo Jürgens, who competed in 1964, 1965 and 1966 for Austria.[4] Monetta's first two entries failed to qualify San Marino to the final, however in 2014, she managed to bring the nation to the final for the first time with "Maybe", placing 24th. Following four consecutive non-qualifying years, San Marino qualified for the final in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019, where Serhat represented nation for his second time and finished in 19th place in the final with "Say Na Na Na".[1] For the 2020 contest, Senhit and her song "Freaky!" were to represent the nation, though following its cancelation, San Marino re-selected Senhit for 2021.[5] Her song, "Adrenalina", which she performed alongside American rapper Flo Rida, qualified for the final.[1]

Before Eurovision

Una voce per San Marino

On 5 April 2021, SMRTV confirmed the participation of San Marino in the 2022 contest and the introduction of Una voce per San Marino ("A voice for San Marino"), a new national final format to select the nation's entry as a part of a 2021–2022 tourism events calendar introduced by the government of San Marino.[6]

In February 2022, following the success of the first edition, the Sammarinese Secretary of State for Tourism, Postal Services, Economic Cooperation and the World Expo Federico Pedini Amati announced that the format had been confirmed for 2023.[7]

Format

On 22 September 2021, SMRTV revealed that the event would be held between December 2021 and February 2022. All competing artists were initially divided into two categories: Emerging and Established. Emerging artists were invited to attend an academy in the Teatro Titano in the City of San Marino from 13 to 17 December 2021 and 3–11 January 2022, acting as preliminary castings. Established artists, also nine in total, were directly invited to the final by Media Evolution SRL. From 13 to 17 February 2022, a series of semi-finals decided the nine Emerging acts that moved on to the Grand Final to join the ten already-selected Established artists, with the top three of the Grand Final also being awarded €1000, €2000 and €7000, respectively.[8] The first four members of the jury for this category, announced on 16 November 2021, are Emilio Munda, Roberta Faccani, Roberto Costa [it] and Steve Lyon.[9][10] The remaining three jury members for the category were announced on 31 December 2021, and are Maurizio Raimo, Nabuk and Mimmo Paganelli.[11]

Competing entries

SMRTV opened a submission period on 22 September 2021 for emerging artists and composers to submit their entries. On 16 November 2021, the broadcaster announced it had received over 200 applications, particularly from Germany, Russia and Sweden, but also from other European countries, the US, and Australia.[12][13] It was later confirmed that there had been 585 applications received overall, out of which 299 were selected to take part in the Emerging acts round.[14]

Established artists

On 8 February 2022, SMRTV announced the identity of the ten Established artists that qualified automatically for the final in their category.[15] One day before the final, it was announced that established participant Blind had withdrawn due to health reasons.[16]

Established artists

Emerging acts auditions

The Emerging acts auditions took place between 13 and 17 December 2021 and 3–11 January 2022. From December and over the course of two months, a total of 299 participants were announced to be taking part in the auditions, despite only 282 being listed.[17][14] From the Emerging acts round, it was confirmed that 60 entrants had qualified. They were revealed on 17 January 2022.[8] Highlights from the auditions were broadcast on San Marino RTV over three consecutive Fridays from 14 January to 28 January 2022.[18]

On 10 February 2022 it was announced that Muriel had been disqualified from the competition for unspecified reasons.[19]

Final

The Grand Final took place on 19 February 2022 at the Teatro Nuovo in Dogana, and was hosted by Senhit and Jonathan Kashanian.[27] A total of 18 artists participated, nine from the Emerging section and nine from the Big section.[28] A jury decided the top three, with the winner going on to represent the country at Eurovision 2022. The jury consisted of: Mogol (songwriter; jury president), Simon Lee (conductor, composer and arranger), Clarissa Martinelli (radio presenter), Susanne Georgi (2009 Andorran representative) and Dino Stewart (managing director at BMG Italy).[29] Italian singer Al Bano (who represented his country at Eurovision in 1976 and 1985), Senhit (representative of San Marino in 2011 and 2021) and Valentina Monetta (representative of San Marino in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2017) performed as guests during the final.[30]

At Eurovision

According to Eurovision rules, all nations with the exceptions of the host country and the "Big Five" (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) are required to qualify from one of two semi-finals in order to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final progress to the final. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) split up the competing countries into six different pots based on voting patterns from previous contests, with countries with favourable voting histories put into the same pot. On 25 January 2022, an allocation draw was held which placed each country into one of the two semi-finals, as well as which half of the show they would perform in. San Marino has been placed into the second semi-final, to be held on 12 May 2022, and has been scheduled to perform in the first half of the show.[33]

Once all the competing songs for the 2022 contest had been released, the running order for the semi-finals was decided by the shows' producers rather than through another draw, so that similar songs were not placed next to each other. San Marino was set to perform in position 7, following the entry from Malta and before the entry from Australia.[34]

Jury voting issues

In a statement released during the broadcast of the grand final, the EBU revealed that six countries, including San Marino, were found to have irregular jury voting patterns during the second semi-final. Consequently, these countries were given substitute aggregated jury scores for both the second semi-final and the grand final (shown above), calculated from the corresponding jury scores of countries with historically similar voting patterns as determined by the pots for the semi-final allocation draw held in January.[37][38] Their televoting scores were unaffected. The Flemish broadcaster VRT later reported that the juries involved had made agreements to vote for each others' entries to secure qualification to the grand final.[39]

On 19 May, the EBU released a further statement clarifying the irregularities in voting patterns. This confirmed that the six countries involved had consistently scored each others' entries disproportionately highly in the second semi-final: the Sammarinese jury, as well as the juries from Azerbaijan, Georgia and Romania, had each ranked the other five countries' entries as their top five, proving beyond statistical coincidence that they had colluded to achieve a higher placing. This prompted the suspension of San Marino's intended jury scores (shown below) in favour of the EBU's calculated aggregate scores, presented above.[40]
